Thanks for sharing the extra pics.  The signature appears to be the real thing to my eyes.  I would think the perfume bottle and at least one of the free form pieces is from his carnival series.  I found the perfume bottle in the link I provided you in one of the previous posts.  Look at book 15.  It shows it but yours is extra special because it is made for Tiffany which would make it more desirable and valuable.  I hope someone comes along soon to be able to give you some sort of estimated value for the free form designs.  Having all the paper work will also make the pieces more desirable to collectors.  You also mentioned having some pieces by his brother.  Are the pieces by Angelo Seguso?  If you have them could you post pics under a different thread for us to see.  You have me curious now.

i agree these are from his carnival series. I'd seen the book you referenced, but nothing that truly resembles the free form pieces.

The signature definitely looks right, so I have no concern about them. This type signature was used on pieces that were considered artistic enough from the late 60s onward. I checked Live Auctioneers to see what kind of prices these type sculptures were going for. The closest one I found was http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/352900, but it is larger than yours. The various Seguso sculptures ranged $500-1000. Your sculptures are a bit smaller, so you might want to aim at the bottom of the range, particularly if you are in the US.

You can also check sites such as Rago Arts and Quittenbaum to see if they can give a better idea of the upper range of prices.
